Playing in three bands (or more) is hard but enjoyable and rewarding work. Sometimes though the multi-band God’s get evil and I end up playing with all three at the same gig. It’s happened before and certainly won’t be the last time. I decided to mix it up a little this time around.
The gig was an event called Boston Clawing, the first annual concert made up of bands from the local area. It was a response of sorts to the international festival down the street called Boston Calling happening the same weekend.
I played a mini solo acoustic set on the second stage with festival co-organizer, Dan Nicklin.

The final performance of the night was two mini sets with Oldjack. The original plan was for us to play a semi acoustic set with no drums. It just so happened that Adam from Tigerman WOAH (who played multiple sets of their own that day) left his drums onstage and was cool with me using them. I can play drums but I’m technically not a drummer so I had to convince the band (and myself a little) that it would work. Which it did!
